TORONTO -- Imax is to follow up an April 15 screening of Universal Pictures’ Oblivion with a live Q&A with Tom Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski.

The appearance by Cruise and Kosinski will be simulcast between New York City and nine other Imax theaters, including in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Dallas.

The Oblivion Q&A will come ahead of the nationwide release on April 19, with special Imax previews in Imax theaters to start on April 18.
